on facebook. or send us an e-mail. we will get back to that new york times story. first, some other headlines on the domestic front. here is the "washington times." also, sticking with the senate, the baltimore sun reporting this headline -- in politics, here is the denver post -- open phones before the first 30 minutes. we have a short show because the house is coming in at 9:00. steve in gaithersburg, maryland, a republican caller. caller: host: when did the republican party become the party that restricts poor? i understand the tax cut for the rich is important to some people, but i feel the good thing would be unlimited in of government at the federal level. that has nothing to do with this. that would be more on the spending cuts. host: what do you make of the back a plan being reported by the new york times saying if we cannot come to some sort of deal, we should just passed tax cuts for the middle class americans and then fight later on for spending cuts and increasing taxes for the wealthy? caller: the tax cut for the general population is great. that would be good for stimulating the

need, it is based on a median income calculation. and as a result of at, states like new york or california has a lot more poor people and also has a lot of rich people, so it doesn't get the same break. you get over 60% reimbursement from the feds. you get 50, you get -- i think it i you get 60. i can't remember everybody's numbers. i tried to educate myself. whereas new york, we only get 50. makes a big difference. pat moynihan who always tried to change the formulas ended up saying it is all james madison's fault. but i think that there are a couple of ings that are terribly, terribly important and don't contradict anything that you all said, weon't have a very good way of measuring adequacy of our infrastructure. we know that the chinese spend eight times a higher percentage of their gdp in infrastructure as we do in this country, and we know that that's got to make us less competitive. i think i learned from the people at the chamber here that cost of moving goods in the united states is greater in absolute dollars than it is in europer asia. therefore adding to our lack
the "new york times," this is what they write where they stand in their progress right now. and there is a disagreement about stimulus funding and whether or not that is included in some overall deal. we will talk more about this from a democrat from pennsylvania coming up here on the "washington journal" later on the program. but i want to stick to our topic here this morning. role of federal state governments and mental health. we'll go to an independent caller from pennsylvania. caller, what's your name? caller: hello? host: hi. what's your name, caller? caller: yes. the role of the government in mental health, i believe, should be stepped up and i think it's directly related to the health care industry in particular. the obama care or whatever type of health program is needed because as someone said earlier, most people do not have enough financial weather withtoll be able to assist people that they know maybe in their family or in their neighbors or the communities to help them. and i'm amazed how when we hear about an event like this, people are amazed that so much vi

in the record a "new york times" op-ed by special counsel carolyn lerner. in her op-ed, special counsel lerner wrote, and i quote, "increasingly the act is being used and a political weapon to disqualify otherwise well qualified candidates even when there is no indication of wrongdoing." this bill will fix that. thank you, mr. speaker. the hatch act modernization act also creates a range of penalties for hatch act violations. currently, the only available penalty for violation of the hatch act, no matter how moderate the violation, is termination unless the merit systems protection board votes unanimously to impose a lesser penalty. under this legislation, the board will have the ability to impose a punishment that fits the crime. this legislation also ensures that the district of columbia employees are treated similarly to state and local government employees rather than as federal employees. the hatch act modernization act makes reforms that are much needed, that are bipartisan, noncontroversial and widely supported. i urge my colleagues to support the bill and send it to the president for a
